When I used to live in Davis and work in Sac, I had a coworker who did the one-way commute once a week. He'd ride in and bus back. Riding back meant a lot of headwind.

My current commute is about...

When I rode the Coyote Creek trail in November 2015 it seemed to be 100% paved and not closed after sunset.

How about rider weight? For some of us larger riders, we need that extra air volume of larger tires because we'd be pumping beyond the recommended max pressures of some 23s.

Anything above 120 tpi qualifies as "high thread count" to me. I'm not sure what the tpi is but I enjoy Schwalbe Ultremo tires.

My sense is that a well-built lightweight wheelset is no less...

"Thin and flimsy" tires mean lighter weight and better ride comfort/quality, generally at the cost of mileage and puncture protection.

I've commuted on a few ss/fg frames over the years and the one I liked the most was the Bianchi San Jose. The only thing I would upgrade on that frame is to get a carbon fork.

1x9 setup (one of the chainring bolts won't come off so I've left the two other rings on there for now) with road tires.

Yup, was just about to say, it's fairly common in the MTB world to have a wider front tire.

Nothing wrong with those wheels per se, but I'm sure a part of you wants to get something lighter.

I am slightly heavier than OP and run 40/50 on 38s. I'd probably go a little higher than that on 35s.

If the weight is comparable to a regular alloy clincher, then I don't see what's the point of going carbon/alloy other than aesthetics.

I'll probably go with the Bianchi, with the Schwinn 564 a close second. The other bikes seem too small/large for you.

Are there any weeknight crit training rides in the Bay Area? The Ardenwood lap featured in the Early Bird series seems to be a good one, but do people train there during the week?

My Corsa Lites were made for 8/9/10 speed so I cannot upgrade to 11s. Make sure you get a version that suits your purposes.
